Begin, a new app from Ryan Block, uses natural language to generate tasks from your Slack

 Over two years after leaving Aol (now known as Oath) back in September 2015 to build a new startup, serial entrepreneur Ryan Block, with co-founder Brian LeRoux, is finally taking the wraps off the new venture: Begin, an intelligent app designed to help you keep track of things that you have to do, and when you should do them, as they come up in the stream of a messaging app. By extension,… Read More

Google Skaffold – Easy and Repeatable Kubernetes Development

README.md

Skaffold is a command line tool that facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes applications. You can iterate on your
application source code locally then deploy to local or remote Kubernetes clusters. Skaffold handles the workflow for building,
pushing and deploying your application. It can also be used in an automated context such as a CI/CD pipeline to leverage the same
workflow and tooling when moving applications to production.
Features
No server-side component. No overhead to your cluster.
Detect changes in your source code and automatically build/push/deploy.
Image tag management. Stop worrying about updating the image tags in Kubernetes manifests to push out changes during development.
Supports existing tooling and workflows. Build and deploy APIs make each implementation composable to support many different workflows.
Support for multiple application components. Build and deploy only the pieces of your stack that have changed.
Deploy regularly when saving files or run one off deployments using the same configuration.
Pluggability
Skaffold has a pluggable

Tell HN: Slack decides to close down IRC and XMPP gateways

Tell HN: Slack decides to close down IRC and XMPP gateways
396 points by elektron 2 hours ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 179 comments 11:14 -!- Message of the dayHello! We have news to share — we’ve decided it’s
time to close down the IRC and XMPP gateways to Slack.After years of evolving, Slack is at the point where
the gateways can no longer handle all of our features
or security needs.If you’ve been using the gateways for accessibility
reasons, we’re glad to let you know that it’s now
possible to navigate Slack by keyboard and with a
screen reader — and we’re making more improvements
on a continual basis.Still, we know this is a disruptive change, and we
want to help with this transition in any way we can.
Please follow this link to learn more about the
upcoming changes:slack.com/account/gateways11:14 -!- End of MOTD command

Big steps for migrations in Drupal 8.5.0

After over four years of work with over 570 contributors and 1300+ closed issues, Drupal 8.5.0 releases the Migrate system’s architecture as fully stable. This means that developers can write migration paths without worrying for stability of the underlying system.
On top of that the Migrate Drupal and Migrate Drupal UI modules (providing Drupal 6 and 7 to Drupal 8 migrations) are considered stable for upgrading monolingual sites. All of the remaining critical issues for the Migrate Drupal module’s upgrade paths and stability are related to multilingual migration support (so multilingual site upgrades are still not fully supported).
Support for incremental migrations is now also available, which means that site owners can work gradually on their new Drupal 8 site while content is still being added to the old site. When migrations (including incremental migrations) are run through the user interface, site owners will now see a warning if some data on the

Drupal 8.5.0 is now available

What’s new in Drupal 8.5.0?
This new version makes Media module available for all, improves migrations significantly, stabilizes the Content Moderation and Settings Tray modules, serves dynamic pages faster with BigPipe enabled by default, and introduces a new experimental entity layout user interface. The release includes several very important fixes for workflows of content translations and supports running on PHP 7.2.
Download Drupal 8.5.0
Media in core improved and available to all site builders
In Drupal 8.4, we added a Media API to core that drew on work from the contributed Media Entity module, but the module was hidden from the user interface due to user experience issues. In Drupal 8.5, many of the usability issues have been addressed, and the module now can be enabled normally. Media in Drupal 8.5 supports uploading and playing audio and video files, as well as listing and reusing media.
For an optimal user experience, we suggest enhancing the

The Evolution of Data at Reddit

Mike Doherty (u/Kaitaan)Senior Engineer, Data Engineering
This post is the first installment of a three-part mini-series on data architecture at Reddit, starting with Reddit’s data “origin story” and finishing with our present-day practices.
Last year, we shared a few blog posts explaining some of the interesting technical challenges we face here at Reddit. From fixing search (again), to how we route requests to different stacks, to (one of my favourites) counting the number of people who’ve viewed a piece of content, among several others, we’ve covered a very small part of what it is our technical teams do here. One area we haven’t covered much of yet is our data systems.
There’s always room for improvement in our systems, whether it’s adding more functionality, scaling to handle more throughput, or throwing everything out the window and starting from scratch. I’ve been here for all of it. And as Reddit’s very first dedicated data engineering hire,

Next Big Windows Update Will Bring Hardware-Accelerated AI

Mary Jo Foley, writing for ZDNet: Every tech vendor these days is quick to slap the AI label on products and services. Up until today, I thought Microsoft had done an admirable job in refraining from doing this with Windows. But the shark has been jumped as of March 7, the company’s latest Windows Developer Day. Cue the eye rolls. Microsoft is telling developers that the next release of Windows 10, which we are still calling by its codename, “Redstone 4,” will enable developers to “use AI to deliver more powerful and engaging experiences.” Microsoft execs say there’s now an AI platform in Windows 10 that enables developers to use “pre-trained machine learning in their apps on Windows 10 devices.”

Create Statistics in PostgreSQL 10

If you’ve done some performance tuning with Postgres, you might have used EXPLAIN. EXPLAIN shows you the execution plan that the PostgreSQL planner generates for the supplied statement. It shows shows how the table(s) referenced by the statement will be scanned (using a sequential scan, index scan etc), and what join algorithms will be used if multiple tables are used. But, how does Postgres come up with these plans?
One very significant input to deciding which plan to use is the statistics the planner collects. These statistics allows the planner to estimate how many rows will be returned after executing a certain part of the plan, which then influences the kind of scan or join algorithm which will be used. They are collected / updated mainly by running ANALYZE or VACUUM (and a few DDL commands such as CREATE INDEX).
These statistics are stored by the planner in pg_class and
